Further research needed to prove the efficacy of Minion goggles...
I am excited to be part of the inaugural Walk L.A. in support of the mission of Children’s Hospital Los Angeles.
More children receive care from CHLA than any other hospital in Southern California - and often CHLA comes to the rescue for children when other hospitals run out of medical options for their care. Walk LA supports the only hospital solely dedicated to the health of children in Los Angeles.
The Eye-Eye Captains team aims to get some bounty for The Vision Center, where we work every day to prevent blindness and improve the lives of children with vision impairment. As a leading center of research, we pursue investigations ranging from:
• Lab studies to understand how retinoblastoma develops and generate new therapies for prevention.
• Clinical trials to revolutionize treatments for diseases like childhood glaucoma and cataract.
• Studies exploring the prevalence of autism in blind children and best practices for diagnosis.
• Telemedicine and innovative technologies for expanding our reach to places around the world where children lack access to eye doctors.
Here are a few ways you can help:
• Donate to my Page to help me reach my fundraising goal!
• Share this with your networks to do some fundraising for Walk L.A.!
• Join The Eye-Eye Captains to fundraise & walk with us on June 17, 2016 at Griffith Park!
Why is this so important? Because ALL kids deserve the best possible shot at developing good eye health – no matter where they come from or how much money they have – so that they can learn and grow and play to the very best of their ability.
Please consider making a tax-deductible gift to support the critical, sight-saving care we provide to over 15,000 patients each year, many of whom are at high risk for losing their vision. Any amount, great or small, will be greatly appreciated and will help us create hope and build healthier futures for the families of Southern California and beyond.
Oh, and about those goggles? I'll say what the research community always says: We need more funding!
